    This might sound like a silly question, but does this site allow Private Messages? I thought it did but the function seems to be disabled (no pun intended!). Or am I doing something incredibly wrong?

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong. I tried to send a couple but could not. I think it has, as you say, been disabled.

    Thanks, MUD, clearly it was very much my imagination! (No surprise there). What on earth is a 'vcard'?

    Righty ho. Done that. Seems a very strange way of doing things. From what I can gather, if you go to a user's profile and look at contacts, 'download vcard' option will then bring up the user's email address if they have the vcard function activated. Why on earth it won't just display my email address, if that's what I want, I'll never know. Complicated stuff this computing!

    Or not, as it transpires. MUD, your profile isn't showing the vcard option. I suspect you may need to tweek your privacy settings or some such like.
    Isn't technology fun?

    A few weeks ago I asked this very same question to the Mods, but got no reply, seems you can't PM mods either.
    So come on mods, give us a response.

    We have looked into this and found that the vcard option isn’t working. We have researched this and found that other organisations have similar issues with vcard technology.

    However, once the developers of the software include a stable fix for this we will add it into your forum.

    Thank you for your patience.

    Is there an issue with PM's? Many sites use this system.
